About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Pellegrini says West Ham must build on victory at Southamptonby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini says they must build on victory at Southampton.The hosts had taken the lead through Nathan Redmond, but Felipe Anderson stole the show with a quick-fire double that earned his side three points and movement into the top half of the table.“I’m happy,” Pellegrini said. “When you start with zero points in 12 then it’s always difficult to recover your position in this way. “In this moment, we are in the top ten. We will continue fighting and improving and, with 27 points, in the second round, we continue improving with our winning mentality, and we try to finish the season as near the top of the table as we can.”He continued: “I thought we played a very good game. From the first minute, we had the intention of winning the game and I thought we were very balanced in the whole game. “We worked most parts of the game in our opponent’s side and we defended very well. They didn’t have many options. “The important thing [when Southampton scored] is we continued to play in the same way, draw the game immediately, and then we scored the winning goal.”

We believe that ending smoking is a realistic goal, and this generation is using their collective power and creativity to make it happen.”This #CheggMusic101 is presented by truth. It is the latest in Chegg’s ongoing series of music classes brought to students across college and high school campuses nationwide. This season’s contest follows successful programs that Chegg has conducted with top-artists including Kaskade, Shawn Mendes, Rachel Platten, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, and Ed Sheeran.“This is our second Chegg Music 101 with an incredible EDM artist. We had a great success in our Brooklyn Technical High School Music 101 with Kaskade where students were able to learn about producing and remixing music. We’re thrilled to be able to bring Steve Aoki to another campus,” said Mitch Spolan, EVP of Brand Partnerships at Chegg. “By broadening the range of artists we work with for our Chegg Music 101s, the more students we can reach, educate, and surprise and delight as they interact with the artists and brands they love.”To learn more about the contest and nominate a school, visit: www.chegg.com/music101.To learn more about how to join truth and become part of the generation to end tobacco for good, visit: thetruth.com.
